"Play as Alucard in this extensive add on for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

Fight creatures of darkness and discover the true extent of Alucard's involvement in Dracula's story, his deal with death and his fight against Satan.

Now, that's a name that has been around a while. New Castlevania followers may know Alucard as Trevor Belmont, the son of the corrupted protagonist in the Lords of Shadow games, Gabriel Belmont. But Alucard was also the main character in the widely acclaimed Symphony of the Night , which released on the original PlayStation. So, do you want to play as Alucard in LoS2…?
Oh yeah, and "Alucard" is Dracula spelled backwards, a fact that's easy to miss for some reason.
